I get interested in all the football hoopla when my home team does really, really well. And just to qualify that statement, well enough to go to the Super Bowl. Yes, I’m one of those fans. Kind of like the sports equivalent to people who […]

Unless you have a staff to insulate you from the world; someone to push a cart around the market, and someone to open doors for you so you don’t have to touch anything while you recline on your divan, sipping Oolong tea, and read a […]

Honeyed Warm Feta with Dates

Honeyed Warm Feta with Dates 600LT : The Wimpy Vegetarian

  I have friends who are appetizer rock stars, but I’ll be the first to admit I’m challenged in this area. By the time I’ve planned a first course, the main event, and dessert, the appetizer becomes an afterthought. At the last minute, I’m invariably […]

Rustic Cauliflower and Tomato Gratin : The Wimpy Vegetarian

Kale and Cauliflower Tart in a Cheddar Crust

I think we’re fitting the rain of one season into one month here in the Bay Area. To be fair, it’s not that we’re getting a lot of hard, driving, flooding rain. It’s more drizzle, light rain, heavy raindrops falling from overladen leaves kind of […]

About a month ago I posted about making stevia powder from a couple of stevia plants I nurtured all summer. Some folks commented that the powder can have an aftertaste, and encouraged me to make extract. It took me a little while, but I finally […]
